Les Misérables (2012) / Django Unchained (2012)

It's time for a New Year's Eve special! Mr. Mendo closes out the year with a double review of Les Misérables and Django Unchained! And as a cap-off, you'll get an answer to the question we know is on your mind!
Heaven is for Real is really dumb
“If there’s one quality that entertainment for Christians shares with video games made for pre-teen girls, it’s the idea that conflict is a dirty word.”It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
“So, basically, one guy was all that was stopping Bedford Falls from turning into a hellhole. I think that’s ample evidence George should’ve gotten out when he had the chance. I mean, come on. If the general populace is too weak-willed not to turn into East St. Louis, why would you want to save them? At what point does personal responsibility kick in? There was no reason whatsoever for George to throw away his life and happiness for these losers.”The Lone Ranger (2013)
Mendo takes on last year's controversial flop, which recently joined the hallowed ranks of films that have been nominated for both Razzies and Oscars. Also, there's some stuff about MAGFest at the beginning, and a bunch of absurd silliness scattered throughout that makes very little sense. In retrospect, Mendo may not have been the best person to tackle this film, but tackle it he shall!Inglourious Basterds (2009)
“It’s hard to fault a film for not being what you want it to be, but one can’t help but wonder what would happen if Tarantino treated his material with a little more maturity or respect.”The Lone Ranger (2013)
“Contains just a bit more cannibalism than one would expect from a Disney-produced Lone Ranger movie.”Les Misérables (2012)
“The whole production practically makes itself. All they needed was for the director not to fail in every way imaginable. But director Tom Hooper somehow managed to do just that.”
